Sheet Pan Chicken with Roasted Broccoli and Potatoes

Sheet Chicken with Roast Potatoes and Broccoli! Everything cooks together on a baking tray – so easy. Use chicken thighs every time for tender, juicy results.

Everyone should have at least one meal they can make without thinking too much—a recipe that’s easy, reasonably healthy, and totally delicious.

Chicken thighs are a fantastic protein because not only are they affordable, but they’re so forgiving when cooking. Unlike breast meat, which becomes dry and stringy when overcooked, chicken thighs still remain tender and juicy, even after being in the oven a minute or two too long.

Of course, chicken thighs aren’t complete without crispy skin. To get that gorgeous golden crispy skin, preheat the sheet pan and sear the thighs, skin-side down, to allow the skin to sear. Flip them halfway through cooking and you’ll have a perfectly crispy skin!

The potatoes can cook right next to the chicken thighs. Since broccoli cooks quickly, wait until you flip the chicken before adding it.

All in all, dinner is on the table in just about 35 minutes, most of which are hands-off. Serve this with a simple side salad and a glass of white wine for a nice treat!
